Eloise started a recreational class at the age of four with her twin brother and fell in love with the sport. She switched from USAIGC to USAG when she started training under coach Tammy Marshall at the age of 10. That was when she knew all she wanted to do was gymnastics. As a level 7 gymnast in 2016, Eloise placed third in the all-around with a 37.225, second on balance beam and third on floor exercise at the State Championships. She qualified to the Region 6 Championships, finishing second in the all-around with a 37.150, second on balance beam and third on uneven bars.
In 2017 as a level 8 gymnast, Eloise finished second in the all-around with a 37.850 and first on balance beam and floor exercise at the State Championships. At the Region 6 Championships, Eloise finished second in the all-around and first on balance beam and floor exercise. She moved up to level 9 for the 2018 season and qualified to the State Championships. She was unable to finish the rest of the 2018 season and 2019 season due to an injury. In 2020, Eloise qualified to the Level 9 State Championships but was unable to compete due to COVID-19 pandemic.
When Eloise is not training 25 hours per week in the gym, she enjoys relaxing with her family and friends, drawing, reading and spending time outdoors. She is an honor student at Cold Spring Harbor Junior/Senior High School. She is a member of Junior National Honor Society and received an award in 8th grade for Recognition of Outstanding Character Development. Eloise has been involved with the Fresh Air Fund packing backpacks for the Backpack Initiative and has helped with a local church fall fair which raises money for Mission Projects and Charities that help people in need locally, across America and all over the world. She also has helped the Lloyd Harbor Historical Society with their “Santa in the Barn” event and often bakes to help out her school’s art booster club for many of their events.
